Row 1 (RS): K across, pick up 1 st in next bound-off (or cast-on) st on end of shawl (21 sts)

Row 2 (WS): K2tog, k3, (yo, k2tog)7 times, yo, k2 (21 sts)

Row 3 (RS): K across, pick up 1 st in next bound-off (or cast-on) st on end of shawl.

Rep Rows 2-11 along end of shawl to last bound-off (or cast-on) st, ending with Row 11 worked into last st (Note: each repeat of Rows 2-11 uses 4 or 5 sts of the shawl bound-off (or cast-on) edge, so you can plan ahead in order to fit the last few repeats in to achieve a total of 12 or 13 points on border.)

Last row: Bind off all sts loosely, cut yarn and weave in tails.

Repeat Applied Lace Border on other short end of shawl.

Finishing: If desired, lightly block shawl by gently dampening it and laying it out on a towel-covered surface. Stretch out lace pattern evenly. Cover with more towels and leave to dry.
